- Excerpt from: Covered Entities and Business Associates Must Provide Notice of a Breach Involving “Unsecured” PHI:

Since September 23, 2009, Covered Entities have been required to notify affected individuals within 60 days after a “breach” of Unsecured PHI is discovered. (A breach is deemed “discovered” on the first day that the “breach” is known or should reasonably have been known.) Covered Entities are also required to provide notice to HHS and, in certain circumstances, to the local media.
